40th Birthday Dinner for 12ppl NYC

MissMara | Mar 2, 201507:25 PM

Hounders - You haven't let me down in the past and i am looking for some advice once again. I am looking to throw my brother a 40th birthday dinner w/~12 ppl in NYC on a Saturday night. Generally thinking downtown Manhattan or Brooklyn. I pulled the below list, but honestly not sure any of the restaurants feel right. Looking for a fun / cool atmosphere that isn't too pretentious. Good food is key. Is it possible? Not sure!

I thought i would have so many good places in mind but when i think about putting 11 other ppls dinner fate in my hands, I get a little queazy.

Looking for suggestions on where others have had great experiences with group dinning. Thanks in advance and if you have any questions - just shoot! Happy to answer anything that can help me plan a successful night.
